Subtotal/Grand Total Not Accurate

 

Hi,

 

I have created a formula:

Onst - Cmpl = format(average('CMPL Table'[ONST to CMPL-EMST]),"HH:MM")
to display the average time it takes for a job to be completed. I am trying to figure out a way to display the average in the rows, but the sum of the averages in the subtotal and total based on the groups on the left.
 
I tried doing the sum of the formula, but it does not display the correct totals either.

Is there another formula I can use, or am I using this formula wrong?

please let me know if my question does not make sense.
 
Thank you!

@sk15227 This looks like a measure totals problem. Very common. See my post about it here: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/DAX-Commands-and-Tips/Dealing-with-Measure-Totals/td-p/63376

Also, this Quick Measure, Measure Totals, The Final Word should get you what you need:
